Mission Statement


The mission of St. Stephen's Youth Programs is to serve neighborhood children and teens by providing them with a safe, challenging, and supportive community in which they can thrive. We strive to build a community where all people feel safe, feel big, and feel connected. To fulfill that mission, our Youth Programs promote: * Safety: Our gathering spaces are well-supervised and physically and emotionally safe. * Growth: Our integrated, year-round programming supports academic progress, the development of new skills, and exposure to new activities and experiences, all of which give children a bigger sense of themselves. As children get older, there is an increased focus on developing life and leadership skills and encouraging civic involvement and responsibility. * Relationships: We encourage the development of a loving community based on meaningful relationships between children, teens, parents, teachers, staff, volunteers, and neighbors.
